All statements are oversimplified.
The basic unknown is how can you tell who is the vulnerable person?
I know healthy people who got very sick, while some smokers barely noticed they got it.
The virus is acting randomly and human body also reacts randomly (E.g. cytokine storm).
But, I would later love to hear more about the Florida success and what was behind it.
Because, for example Japan had only few restrictions, but so far managed the situation very well for the high density of their cities. Most likely thanks to common mask wearing, they are used to for decades.
The problem with this kind of virus is much more complex than just to dismiss it as not worth stopping the spread. It is well illustrated by the speed it spread around the globe.
I think more importantly we need to stop new much more dangerous strains from arising.
IMO, you suggest to trade potential long-term severe consequences for short term gains.
Nobody knows what is the right approach right now, but from the point of risk management,
it is better to prevent potential unassessable risks from happening than do nothing and hope bad consequences will not happen.
